Rocca di Montegrossi

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2017

2021/8-9. Based on some disparity among notes I had read, I was a little apprehensive about the style of this, but it wasn’t annoying (read: not overrripe, no noticeable oak), and the notes suggesting elegance and vibrancy turned out to be the right ones. — 4 hours ago

Dievole

Riserva Novecento Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2017

Predictably, very tight right now, but opening slowly. Intensely peppery at first, scaring me that the heat of the year would be the predominant characteristic, but it’s receding a bit and allowing the dried cherry fruit and balsamic spice to come through.

UPDATE: Night 2 this wine has become surprisingly scorchy and a bit bitter. I’m leaving the score as is, but this negative development in only 24 hours suggests that this is for early drinking.

Earthy, mushrooms, leather, cherries, little bit of cinnamon jolly rancher, herbs. Haven’t had a Chianti in a long time. Nice to revisit. Nice long weekend is on the horizon. Hope everyone is staying safe with so many disasters happening all at one. ☹️ — 16 days ago
